WOBO and it’s members recognise the benefits from a BIM-based approach applied within the development process.
The final version of our latest article titled “BIM-based approach to conduct Life Cycle Cost Analysis of resilient buildings at the conceptual stage” is now available online in the Journal of “Automation in Construction” at the following link:
This study aims to support the design of resilient buildings using a sound LCC methodology in the preliminary design stage and to integrate LCC capabilities directly into BIM and increase the economical relevance and scientific robustness of LCC indicators towards better LCC cost optimization. The plugin, which is developed in the BIM tool is represented to use cost and resiliency factors to predict the whole process cost of building projects to assist designers in selecting a cost-efficient and resilient design option.
Thanks to all co-authors for their collaboration especially the first author Mr. Mohammad Amin Hamedi Rad for his hard work in developing such a novel integrated BIM-LCCA application.
